If I have plantar fasciitis how often should I do my calf stretches?

Complete stretches for your calves at least 2-3 times per day, especially when you wake up and before you go to bed. The calf muscles can become tight when sleeping, so stretching in the morning will be important. Stretching before bed will help relax the calf muscles after a long day, particuarly if you're on your feet all day. You can also use a foam roller on your calves as a form of self-massage several times a day prior to stretching to help improve calf flexibility.
